Kevin Fifield was born and raised in Cedar Springs, MI. After graduating from Cedar Springs High School, he joined the U.S. Army where he served as a medic for two years active as well as 12 years Reserves. When his service was completed and he was honorably discharged he moved to Grand Rapids, MI.
In 1984 Kevin began his financial career with Independent Order of Foresters. During his 14 years at Foresters he was in the top five district managers for five years running. From 1996-1998 he served on the president’s advisory team due to his experience and yearly production.
Kevin is very active in the community and supports the follow organizations: Boys and Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids, Grace Bible College, Kids Food Basket, Byron Community Wellness Foundation, and a member of the Byron Center Chamber of Commerce.
In 1998 Kevin created BCF Wealth Strategies. BCF Wealth Strategies acts as a personal CFO for its clients. Our goal is to help retirees, self-employed and small business owners create and maintain wealth. Kevin provides consultation and advanced planning in the following areas: retirement planning, estate planning, life insurance, annuity services, 529 plans, corporate retirement planning, 401(k) plans, simple IRAs, health savings accounts and long-term care. He works with some of the leading estate attorneys, CPA’s and Life Insurance professionals in the West Michigan Area.
Kevin builds relationships with individuals and businesses by striving to create and protect assets and ensure the proper transfer of assets by not just providing financial advice, but by creating a financial plan. The ultimate goal is to help his clients reach their financial goals and dreams now and in the future.
Kevin believes one of the things that sets him apart in today’s market is the fact that he doesn’t want to just be your financial advisor; he wants to help you build your wealth by working closely with you to create your wealth strategy for the future. Kevin’s service is deeply driven by commitment to his clients with the goal to help them achieve financial independence. He feels this is proven to them in the way they are treated as clients and how they are charged for the services they receive.
There are essentially three types of fee structures. Fee Based on Percentage of assets, Fee Based on an Hourly Rate, and Flat Fee for a One-Time Financial Plan. Of these three, Kevin uses the fee based on a percentage of assets and this fee is a negotiable one with his clients. He provides consistent and continuous monitoring of his client’s assets as he has a vested interest in the account value. If the account value rises it will benefit the client and the firm. The same theory applies to losses in the account value as well.
